Sometimes, I get to design fun and absurd fantasy gowns inspired by the Tudors. This is totally one of those times. I knew I wanted to do a fantasy Min-Seo paper doll, because I do so many fantasy dresses.

Because of the stiffness of the clothing, a Tudor fantasy gown is a really great opportunity to play with elaborate pattern. At first, I conceived of the pattern on her skirt being snowflake inspired. Since, I didn’t want to make yet another blue and white and grey winter gown. When I actually started coloring it, it stopped looking much like snow.

I do think the eggplant/magenta color on the gown does feel autumnal to me. I can’t imagine this a summer gown, but I’m not really sure it is a winter gown. What do you think of my color scheme? Should I have stuck with my blues and grays?

As often happens with paper dolls who’ve got black hair, I feel like the complexity of her hairstyle got a little lost. It’s much more clear in the black and white coloring page version. No matter how you slice it, black line-work tends to disappear against dark dark grey I use for hair. I also gave her black toenails, because it amused me. No other reason. Painted toenails were not a Tudor thing, but that’s why I say Tudor fantasy gown and not Tudor gown.

So, this gives us one punk Min-Seo from Monday. Today’s Tudor fantasy gown wearing Min-Seo. Tomorrow there will be a historical Min-Seo paper doll from the 1920s, so stay tuned.

    I would probably list this as an autumnal gown. Even the style says autumn to me, not just the colors(not that I could explain that.) If you’re looking for a new winter color scheme, what about dark green and white (sort of a “snow on the pines”). BTW, the hairstyle was pretty clear on my monitor, although I can see why dark hair is problematic. Looking forward to tomorrow’s 20s outfit!

    Gorgeous! I love everything about this! The colors are a great contrast without clashing, and the pattern is amazing! The hairdo shows up well in full size, it’s only the thumbnail that’s harder to see. Thank you for another beautiful gown.

    Dark hair can be tough and this one is just beautiful. The pattern on the gown is so pretty. I don’t see a snowflake at all!
